Extract from the official war diary of the 9th Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment
A very quiet day. At about 11.30 pm the Germans attempted a bombing raid on the position of the trench lying between our extreme left right which is a bombing post, and the extreme right left of the 9th Welsh Regt. Two of the enemy were in advance cutting the wire but were heard by a working party of the 9th Welch. This party threw the bombs they were carrying and our Bn. bombers under 2Lieut. E.M. Griffiths went to their assistance. The enemy did not attempt to penetrate or force their way through once they were discovered but retired. One man wounded and one killed were left behind. The wounded man entered our trench and gave himself up to the 9th Welch. We retrieved the body of the dead man who belonged to the 215 Reserve Regt. All quiet during the remainder of the night.
